Pirl Beach


The cottages at Pirl Beach were, according to a 1913 newspaper article, built by L.E. Woodworth of Ashtabula. He arrived in the community October 1913 and planned to live in one of the cottages with his wife and son while he built the other three.


Our visitors say:

Our family (from Canton)and our cousins from Warren started vacationing at Pirl Beach (bewtween GOTL & Madison OTL from 1958-71). What great memories, Ma & Pa Bush’s Corn Stand, Madsens Donuts, Pop Perra’s Kiddie Land, the go-karts. We would stay for 2 weeks swimming all day then burgers & dogs on the grill. Then we’d have nightly softball & touch football games in “The Bowl” a park on the grounds with all the other kids from the other cottages refereed by my dad “Uncle Eddie” to all the kids. Only 1 night, the last Thursday did we hit the strip. Oh what memories!
